“But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.” Jn. 1:12-13.  Yes, a sinner must “receive” (which […]

Contrary Not Complicated

Contrary Not Complicated The gospel does not remain a mystery to the natural man because it is complicated. The gospel remains a mystery because it is contrary to everything he believes to be true. It is contrary to his view of God. He will honour God with his lips but believe in his heart in […]

Promise and Call “The PROMISE is unto you and to your children, and to all that are a far off, even as many as the Lord our God shall CALL.” Acts 2:39.      Both the promises of God and the call of God are necessary for his glory and for our salvation. The promises of God, without […]

In Christ

 In Christ   Why does Paul say that he wanted to found in Christ? It is because Christ is everything God the Father requires, everything God freely gives his people, is IN CHRIST. Colossians 1: 19: For it pleased the Father that IN HIM should all fulness dwell Ephesians 1: 3: [God the Father] “blessed his […]

Circumcision of the Heart      Physical circumcision is the cutting away of flesh.

The Truth of Thy Salvation We come into the presence of God only according to the, “Truth of Thy Salvation” Ps. 69:13. So, what is the truth of God’s salvation? Perhaps the alliteration will give us some hooks on which to hang our thoughts. 1.      God is SOVEREIGN in Salvation. I will have mercy on whom […]

Our Immutable God

Our Immutable God An old Greek philosopher once said; “the only constant is change”. He was never able to find any purpose behind this ever-changing world and ended up taking his own life. Truth is, everything is in constant flux, but not without purpose. The Lord changes not (Mal.3:6). He is the same yesterday, today, […]

Saving Faith

Posted by on January 19, 2020 at 5:50 am

Saving Faith is not believing that you are saved; it is believing that Christ Jesus the Lord is the One and only all sufficient, successful Saviour. Saving Faith is not believing that you are elect; it is believing that you are a sinner completely dependent upon Christ for all your righteousness. Saving Faith is not […]

The Miracle of Hearing God-called gospel preachers spend a lot of time in prayer and preparation of the Word. They are deeply concerned with being clear and faithful to preach Christ and Him crucified. “How shall they hear without a preacher” Rom. 10:14. Paul asked rhetorically, “who is sufficient for these things”? I Cor. 2:16. […]
